How To Make Low Carb Zucchini Fritters
Frying these fritters in a skillet is a breeze! That sizzle as they cook up is one of my favorite sounds, ever! The good news is that this recipe is so fast and easy to make. Just a tad bit of prep work is needed to make homemade keto-friendly fritters.
- Shred the zucchini. (I like to use a cheese grater as it’s fast!) Just pat the shreds dry to get rid of excess water.
- Cut up the parsley and chives.
- Pour in the almond flour and ricotta cheese. Mix.
- After that is mixed, add the grated parmesan cheese and combine.
- Add in the egg.
- Pour the oil into your frying pan and let it get hot. Once it’s hot, add a scoop of the zucchini mixture.
- Let it cook and then flip it. It should be brown on both sides.
- If there is excess oil after the fritters are cooked, lay them on a paper towel to soak up the excess.
See how simple these are to make? You just need to make sure that the oil is hot before adding in the fritter batter. This helps to crisp them up perfectly.
Tips For Making Low Carb Fritters
You may have some questions about a few things in this recipe so I’m answering some of the most common questions associated with it. I want to make sure that you have all the information that you need to create the tastiest fritters, ever!
Why are my zucchini fritters soggy?
You have to be sure that you’re squeezing or patting out the extra liquid from the zucchini. Zucchini are loaded down and full of water and you need them to be pretty dry to fry up without being soggy.
How can I thicken my fritter batter?
If the batter is a little too thin for your liking, just add in a tad bit more almond flour. I’d add in a teaspoon at a time and stir because you don’t want to make it too thick!
What do you eat zucchini fritters with?
Anything that you want! You can literally eat them by themselves, or dip them in some sauce for flavor as well. Some people pair fritters up with soups and salads, too! This is a great alternative to bread as a side for these savory entrees.
They also go well with some fresh sliced veggies for an easy snack.
